Scout has always stood for continued innovation, high-quality builds and unique solutions to challenges great and small as they practice the art and execute the science of boatbuilding. Those attributes make this South Carolina boatbuilder stand out from any boat-show fleet. The new 215 XSF carries on that tradition, providing big-boat performance, clever thinking, excellent use of space, and a confident ride in a compact 21-foot package.
Inside, the XSF has a cockpit more than large enough for anglers and day cruisers alike; at nearly 22 square feet and 22 inches deep, it’s a safe haven for kids too. A 21-gallon aerated baitwell is ready for a full day of fishing, and a 13-gallon freshwater tank is standard as well. Rod storage is under the gunwales, with room for four sticks. A raw-water washdown system is also a standard item aboard this fishing machine.
Interior-wise, the Scout is anything but spartan. Stainless-steel split bow rails provide a safety margin, along with the stainless-steel grab rail on the center console. A console-cushion set is standard, as are bow bolsters and a bow-cushion set. A powder-coated aluminum leaning post with backrest and 72-quart Igloo cooler offer seating at the helm. Three USB connection points and a 12-volt receptacle ensure connectivity and charging capability for cellphones. A Fusion Bluetooth sound system is standard, as is hydraulic steering. At the stern, port and starboard swim platforms with a stainless-steel boarding ladder make watersports access easy.
- Self-bailing cockpit gives peace of mind in difficult conditions or when moored for extended periods.
- Clean rigging with top-shelf build quality and workmanship yields a boat that is rugged and looks great.
